Diversity and Inclusion Policy

Class of 2016 at graduationThe mission of the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine is to educate culturally diverse students to become excellent physicians, by focusing on generalist training that is integrated, supported, and strengthened by specialists and researchers, all of whom value patient-focused care, community service, and research and have passion for improving health in their communities.

We are an institution that desires to be nationally recognized and admired for our diversity. We boldly acknowledge that as global citizens diverse social interactions are an essential element of our student’s intellectual development. Therefore, our students are expected to explore the full spectrum of their human potential as medical professionals who will live, work and interact within a global community of people.

Our commitment to maintaining a culturally diverse student environment will be accomplished by designing and implementing innovative and effective strategies, systems, and standards to create and sustain a model educational setting that is measurably open, fair and inclusive for the all Boonshoft School of Medicine students. Furthermore, we will maintain an educational environment where our students are admonished not to infringe upon the civil rights or privileges of others, but are encouraged to express their thoughts without threat of reprisal.

As an institution we will invest the necessary time, finances, and collective talents of our faculty and staff to ensure that all students, regardless of their race, sex (including gender identity/expression), color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, disability, genetic (DNA) information, veteran status, military status, or sexual orientation are valued.
